Documents propis i texts d’altri

The new book that the Fundació publishes that year contains the contributions that J. V. Foix worked for the Serra d’Or magazine between 1960 and 1962, renewing the old practice of “Meridians”, in the newspaper La Publicitat< /em>, where he did cultural journalism, an activity he dedicated himself to for twenty years, from twenty-three to forty-three.
It is the first time that these collaborations have been collected in one volume. In “Documents propis” he collects opinions of Catalan writers, while in “Texts d’altri” he collects the opinions of foreign authors.

Merry Christmas, by J. V. Foix

La gent s’agleva en la nit dura,
Tots anuncien la ventura,
Les Illes porten el saïm,
I els de l’Urgell, farina pura:
Qui res no té, clarors del cim.
La fe que bull no té captura
                                I no es fa el Pa sense el Llevat:
                                A cal fuster hi ha novetat.
                                                        J. V. Foix, Nadal 1953

The well-known verse of J. V. Foix “It’s when I sleep that I see clearly” illustrate one of the panels in the exhibition Brain(s) at the CCCB, which takes us so deep into the anatomy of the brain as in everything it generates: consciousness, abstract thought, language, imagination, dreams and memory.

During sleep we enter a state of altered consciousness, and although the brain is still active —in fact, activity increases in some areas while we sleep— our perception is greatly reduced.

J. V. Foix‘s verse gives the title to the poetry recital that Teatre Essela, with Cacu Prat and Pep Tines, presented at the Vapor Badia Library in Sabadell.
It is a journey through texts referring to industrialization, to which avant-garde creators such as Joaquim Folguera, Joan Salvat-Papasseit, J. V. Foix and Joan Brossa referred.
